Pear Juice Concentrate
100% USA grown pears. Fructose, the sugar compound found in pear concentrate is sweeter the sucrose (table sugar), but has a lower glycemic index. It takes less pear concentrate as a sweetener to achieve the same taste as when table sugar is used to sweeten. Because of its relatively lower glycemic index compared to table sugar, it is absorbed into the bloodstream at a slower pace. Use pear concentrate in any recipe that calls for sugar. 1/2-2/3 cup of pear concentrate equals 1 cup of sugar.
